Our quarterly pensions and investments market update
Investment Perspectives - Spring 2020
05 May 2020
Welcome to our 2020 Spring edition of Investment Perspectives.
In this edition, our capital markets update is, not surprisingly, focused on the impact of the coronavirus on markets. For now, the emphasis is on making sure that investment strategies, and its implementation, is fit for purpose however challenging markets and the economy become.
Despite COVID-19 dominating the headlines this quarter, there are other areas that still require attention within the investment governance of pension schemes. Our Spring update also outlines some key issues and the impact of new legislation:
- Simon Jones and Caoimhe Bain provide an update on stewardship following the recent revamp of the UK Stewardship Code by the FRC.
- Ross Fleming discusses The Pensions Regulator's new funding code and the investment implications for pension schemes.
- Alen Ong provides an overview of RPI reform, the impact on market pricing and the implications for pension funds.
